What we believe:

  • We believe in the divine inspiration & inerrancy of the Holy Bible; both the old Testaments (2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12)
  • We believe in one God revealed in three Persons: The Father, The Son & The Holy Spirit (Matthew 3: 16-17; John 17) 
  • We believe that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is God who came in the flesh, born of the Virgin Mary & that He was both man & fully God when here on earth (Luke 1:26-38; John 14: 1-3; Acts 2:36; Acts 3:14-15; Philippians 2:5-11; Ephesians 1:3-15) 
  • We believe the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Trinity whose purpose in the redemption is to convict of sin, regenerate, sanctify, empower & guide the repentant believer into understanding the Holy Scriptures; indwell & give gifts to believers as He wills so that they may minister as Christ would to men.  We believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit recorded in 1 Corinthians 12:8-11 & the importance of the fruit of the Spirit, which empowers the gifts shall operate in the churches today which yield to the Lord Jesus Christ.  We believe a believer can be baptized in the Holy Spirit at the moment of regeneration or anytime subsequent to his regeneration (new birth) experience (Luke 11:13; John 7:37-39, 14: 16-17; Matthew 3:11; Acts 1:4-5& 8, 10:44-47, 19; 1-6; Galatians 5:22-23) 
  • We believe in the saving power of the Blood of Jesus Christ & His imputed righteousness to all who believe in Him with faith (Acts 4:12; Romans 4: 1-9, 5: 1-11; Ephesians 1: 3-15)
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ (Luke 24:39-43; John 20:24-29) 
  • We believe that Jesus Christ ascended to & is presently seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us (John 14:1-6; Romans 8:34) 
  • We believe in the visible, bodily return of Jesus Christ to this earth to gather His Church (Bride) & judge the world (Acts 1:10-1; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18: 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10: James 5:8; Revelations 1:7) 
  • We believe that the terms of salvation are repentance toward God from sin & a personal, heartfelt faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, which results in regeneration of the person & eternal reward in Heaven.  This salvation is entirely by grace of our Lord & not of works.  Works are excluded except as a fruit of salvation ((Matthew 25:34, 46; Acts 3:19-20; Romans 4:1-5, 5:1-2 Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 10; Revelation 20:11-13) 
  • We believe that the two ordinances of the church are water baptism & communion (The Lord’s Supper) (Matthew 3:15-16, 28:19-20; Acts 8:38; Romans 6:1-4; Luke 22:13-20) 
  • We believe that believers should seek, as the early disciples did, to practice a life consecrated unto Jesus Christ, separate from the world & lived out in fellowship with local believers.  We should also adopt standards of conduct that shall exalt our Lord & His church (Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:1-3; Galatians 6:14; Ephesians 5:11; Colossians 3:17)
